May 31: “The Big Pivot” (Online Service)

Presenter: Rev. Monica Dobbins
[UU Minister from First Unitarian Church of Salt Lake City]

We are standing on a threshold between one world and the next: the pre-pandemic world is getting smaller and smaller in the rear-view mirror and the new world post-pandemic is still out of view around the bend. Now we must ask: what is the purpose of the church in this liminal time? What questions can we ask ourselves to help shape our mission as we travel this uncharted road?
